Because the question was obviously copied from somewhere else. People who ask self-written questions do not start out with "Situation 1" [at least no without going on to Situation 2]. They also don't ask open ended questions about "the effect" that a feature has on another feature: they ask -specific- questions.
I didn't pay any attention at the time to who had posted the question, but seeing as it is you, I have further indicators: namely that the the English phrasing and sentance structure of the question was significantly different than anything I have seen you write. When you are phrasing sentances yourself, you use l33t-speak like "how r u"; your capitalization is inconsistant; you usually leave out the space after a period; and your nouns are not always pluralized correctly. I do not say this to insult you, only to point out that the question posted was clearly not one that you had written yourself.
:I think :you have failed to understand the technical aspect of my question &
I did understand the technical question, but historically, our experience has been when someone obviously copies a question from somewhere else, that -they- do not understand the technical question.
:your point of reply is again pulling us to the ugly point of :distraction rather than helping me to gain some knowledge. :If you feel you can help me for the technical aspect of the :question,please find your time to answer it else please avoid any :personal disfiguring.
I did not engage in any 'personal disfiguring'. I gave you advice. I said that your question "appears" to be homework or an assignment (and it certainly did so appear.) I said that if people "perceive" your question that way, that they will tend to be displeased, and I offered a short explanation of why they would feel displeased.
I then indicated to you what you could do to reach a wider audience: namely, to post -your- take on the question and -your- reasoning about it: when people get the impression that you are trying for yourself but that you've just misunderstood something, then people are often quite willing to be of assistance.
This newsgroup is not a library, and it is not an organization of free tutoring and free consulting: this newsgroup is composed of
, some of whom mostly read and some of whom read and respond. The people who respond seldom like to feel they are taken advantage of: they often don't mind -helping- someone, but they don't want to feel that they are doing all the work (especially if the question gives the impression that the other person is likely to get credit for the answer.)
Hence, if you want to get the best answers out of this newsgroup, instead of just posting a copied question, explain what you already know about the question, and describe the various possibilities of interpretation that you see; when you do that, people are -much- more likely to point you in the right direction (and might even explain why the other alternate possibilities don't work, which can be information that is ten times as valuable.)
:If you feel you can help me for the technical aspect of the :question,please find your time to answer it else please avoid any :personal disfiguring.
If this had been comp.lang.c, the answer from other posters would have simply been,
"Send us the email address of your course instructor, and we will send the answer to him."
But that's not what I did: instead I explained what the problem was with the way the question was put to us, and I explained what you needed to do in order to get a better answer.
